Frequently Asked Questions


Our obligation is to provide a quality and professional service; we want our clients to know about their Natural hair, braid styles, the Do’s and Don’ts of the braids and natural styles we provide.


How long will the braid last?


Individual braids and twist can last between two to three months. Sew-in-weaves last 4-6 weeks cornrows with added hair between 2-4 weeks.


Please note that if you leave your braids in beyond estimated time your hair might be locking. It might also cause loss of your hair on your hairline.


How often can I shampoo my braids?


We advise that you shampoo your braids once a month depending on how long you intend to wear your braids. However, we equally advise that you minimize the number of times that you shampoo your braids especially twist. This is a part of the after service follow-up service that we render at an affordable fee.


How do I take care of my braids?


You need to tie your hair down every night with a satin scarf. Spray your hair at least 1 to 2 times a week and ensure that your ends are not dry to avoid fizziness.


Can l use braids in transition from Perm to Natural hair?


Yes you can! Braids are a super technique that can transition from a relaxer/perm to natural hair. The truth is while you are braiding your hair it is advisable that the hair shaft is stable and it equally allows minimization of the regular grooming.          


Professionally we believe that the hair shaft is best stabilized in braids or twist during the transition of your hair.
